The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah, while speaking at an event on Friday morning, said that the party has ensured that Gujarat remains riot-free. With just a couple of months remaining for Gujarat elections 2017, Shah said that the people of Gujarat have to choose between Congress and BJP. He said that both the parties have ruled the state and people can easily assess who did a better job. Shah added that Congress even failed to provide electricity in Gujarat. Talking about the Gujarat model, the BJP chief said that this particular model is being talked about all over the world and it was the reason why Narendra Modi was elected as the Prime Minister of the country.
The senior BJP leader said that the people of Gujarat cannot be fooled by the antics of Congress anymore. He said the party even failed to provide basic facilities like water in the state. “Ony 26% houses received water under Congress rule,” he said. Shah said that the Bharatiya Janata Party allowed the youth of the state to follow their dreams and created more opportunities for them.
He said that the Bharatiya Janata Party ensured that every year 77,000 engineers graduate from the state every year. He said that if BJP returns to power in the state, it will stick to the ‘sabka sath, sabka vikas’ strategy. Shah added that even though Congress is making BJP’s development agenda, it has failed to allege us of any corruption charges since the BJP came to power. “Congress should look at its own record,” he said.
